Book Description:

This simple, updated guidebook shows how to read, understand and construct proofs

From the Back Cover:

Well-regarded in its first edition, The Nuts and Bolts of Proofs leads readers through an explanation of mathematical proofs, the basic rules of logic that makes them work and basic techniques used to construct them.

The Nuts and Bolts of Proofs can be used to supplement upper-level mathematics courses. It can also be used effectively for self-learning. The mathematical concepts are elementary, the presentation is accessible and exercises with solutions are included.

This second edition presents more examples, more exercises and a more complete treatment of mathematical induction and set theory. This book has been class tested with success for many years.

"I particularly like the 'Warning' given just before the solutions. This provides excellent instructions on how to work at the writing of a proof."
--Patricia R. Allaire, Queensborough Community College

"The author puts a lot of care into explaining the components and logic of mathematical proofs. The style allowed a slow yet methodical reading of the various explanations and examples."
--Joel Zinn, Texas A&M University
